We numerically solve the active nematohydrodynamic equations of motion, coupled to a Turing reaction-diffusion model, to study the effect of active nematic flow on the stripe patterns resulting from a Turing instability. If the activity is uniform across the system, the Turing patterns dissociate when the flux from active advection balances that from the reaction-diffusion process. If the activity is coupled to the concentration of Turing morphogens, and neighbouring stripes have equal and…

Universal dynamics of biological pattern formation in spatio-temporal morphogen variations
In biological pattern-forming systems, generic features have been previously identified that promote robustness with respect to variation between systems in components such as protein production
